Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The contact owns a 2006 Volkswagen Gti. The contact noticed a reduction in power along with a shuddering of the vehicle and the check engine light illuminated intermittently. The dealer replaced the crank case breather hose and a fuel pressure sensor; however, the problem intensified and the vehicle was almost inoperable. The contact had the vehicle towed to the dealership and the vacuum hose was replaced. The dealer also performed the ignition coil recall repair on the vehicle. When he picked up the vehicle, the check engine light illuminated when he turned the vehicle on; however, the dealer suggested that he had a valve lash and fuel pump module repair. While driving long a distance, the vehicle check engine began to blink on and off. The failure was diagnosed by a second dealer who stated that there was a major failure with the camshaft system which needed to be replaced along with the high pressure fuel pump, and a cam follower. The vehicle was repaired and the check engine light was illuminated at the time of the complaint. He called the manufacturer and was told that they could not assist him. The current mileage was approximately 85,000. The failure mileage was approximately 84,000.

There were no events leading up to this failure. Car hesitated. Took it to the dealership. This wa S supposedly a wide spread problem that the fuel pumps went bad in desert temperatures. New fuel pump took 4+ weeks to arrive - back ordered.
